On March 13, 2019, we celebrated our 26th Annual Law & Society Award Luncheon honorees Kim Koopersmith and Vanita Gupta, in support of our efforts to secure justice through community power for all New Yorkers.

Kim and Vanita were both thrilled to be honored, and were very supportive of NYLPI’s work:

The event was written up by the New York Law Journal and Kim’s firm, Akin Gump, put out a press release about the lunch, which is available here.

Thank you to our 2019 event sponsors for making the luncheon such a success!
